Teenage Interfaith Diversity Education (T.I.D.E.) 2010: Wave of Change
Interfaith Action’s (IFA’s) annual T.I.D.E. conference is an exciting opportunity for high-school teens to “be in the driver’s seat” in the interfaith movement. Through interactive workshops and plenary sessions, teens from across the country will showcase their interfaith and leadership projects and programs. IFA teen leaders will facilitate activities that build communication skills and lead dialogues about highly charged and potentially divisive issues.
We want to hear from you! Submit a proposal to share your interfaith and community-building work. Learn more about leading workshops and submitting proposals for T.I.D.E. here or contact Youth Leadership Program Director Jason Smith, by email or phone 781.784.0651. Deadline has been extended to April 9th for consideration this year.
By sharing personal stories, participating in or observing worship, engaging in meaningful workshops and dialogues, reflecting upon community service opportunities, and sharing in fun evening activities, teens will foster bonds across religious, cultural, and ethnic differences and bring new energy, skills, and ideas back to their communities. Teens can stay connected throughout the year with a new innovative on-line dialogue forum created by Idealogue, Inc.
Adults who work with teens are invited to join the T.I.D.E. Conference in a special adult track. The T.I.D.E. 2010 Adult Track includes dedicated time to network, share best practices, discuss ideas and issues, learn from each other, train in the IFA methodology, and brainstorm ways we can work together to strengthen our individual programs and the larger teen interfaith movement. Adults may submit proposals to share best practices with other adult attendees. Please join us!
“The T.I.D.E. conference is the ultimate experience… It brings people together and shows that we all have difference, but if we understand them, the whole world can become a better place.” Michael, past T.I.D.E. participant
